Safe and efficient asbestos removal in Nottingham and East Midlands...
Many of us know about asbestos and how dangerous it can be to a person’s health, especially when it is disturbed. So, if you discover asbestos on your property during an asbestos management survey, or over the course of renovations, you will most likely be anxious to know if it is possible to manage it and remove it safely.
At East Midlands Roofing Solutions, we work in conjunction with licensed organisations to safely and legally remove asbestos. As part of our roofline services we also take samples of your roofline to test for traces of asbestos before starting roofing projects, fascia and soffits or guttering installations.
Years ago, asbestos was lauded as one of the best materials in the construction industry. This is because it is resistant to heat, electricity and corrosion. However, as time has gone by and more tests have been done on asbestos, it has become clear that the material poses a significant risk to health and safety.
This is because when asbestos is disturbed the soft and flexible fibres it is composed of come loose and enter the air. Once breathed in these fibres cause inflammation and scarring. Over time and with repeated exposure, asbestos can cause mesothelioma, a type of aggressive cancer, and other diseases.
In the event of an asbestos discovery, it may not be feasible to leave it undisturbed. If this is the case, then safe and efficient removal in line with the law is necessary.
At East Midlands Roofing Solutions, we provide asbestos removal in and around Nottingham and the East Midlands.

If you discover or suspect asbestos during any refurbishment or renovation it is important to stop the works immediately until you can identify it. Further to this, you should take steps to keep everyone away from the area and make sure it is clearly signposted. If asbestos is discovered on a commercial property, this should be reported to the person in charge who should update the asbestos management plan.
Once asbestos has been identified it is crucial that a risk assessment is carried out before any work continues to protect individuals in the vicinity.
